New York City
The Area Stage Company announces the production of Once Upon a Mattress. If you thought you knew the story of the princess and the pea, you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know that it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again!
